1853 Bengali JP fines Auchee Chinaman Rs200 for possessing 3 varieties of opium
1853 Huru Chunder Ghose one of Her Majesty’s native Bengali Justices of Peace for the Town and Settlement of Calcutta convicts Auchee Chinaman and orders him to pay Rs200 fine for possessing massive quantities of 3 varieties of opium, and in default to serve 3 months prison term in the custody of Calcutta Sheriff Frederick Bellairs and Jeremiah King Governor Calcutta Jail and release him after expiry of jail term
HURU CHUNDER GHOSH or Rai Bahadoor Hara Chandra Ghosh(archaic Hurro Chunder Ghose) was one of the prominent leaders of theYoung Bengalgroup (a group of radical Bengali Free Thinkersemerging from Hindoo College, Calcutta of British Indiain the early 19th century).He was the first Bengali to be a judge of the Calcutta Small Causes Court from 1854 to 1868.H.E.A. Cotton says, “In his youth, he was a favorite pupil, as the Rev. K.M Bannerjeehad been of David HareandVivian Louis DeRozio, but unlike others he maintained his Hinduism.”He earned fame as a judge and was not involved in religion and social reform. In 1844, he became principalsadar aminof 24 Parganas.After serving for twenty years as a member of the subordinate Civil Judiciary inBengal, he was gazetted as junior police magistrate of Kolkata or Her Majesty’s Justice of Peace in 1852, on the unanimous recommendation of the judges of theSadar Diwani Adalat. In 1854, he was transferred to the Small Causes Court, where he remained till his death. He was associated withJohn Elliot Drinkwater Bethunein the formation of the Bethune School and was a member of the school committee.He joined the other Derozians for the construction of a memorial statue for David Hare.
My note: How did Mr. Ghosh look like? There is a marble statue of Rai Bahadoor HURUCHUNDER GHOSH at the portico of Bankshall Court, protected by railing, and hawkers’ wares hanging from railing all over.
Achhipur China Town, one of the earliest settlements of Chinese community in India was established by Tong Achew,a trader who landed near Budge Budge, about 33 kilometers from Calcutta on the banks of river Hooghly, during the rule of the Honorable East India Company. Achew set up a sugar cane plantation along with a sugar factory. Achew brought in a band of Chinese workers to work in his plantation and factory. These Chinese settlers moved to Calcutta afterwards. The place came to be known as Achipur, after Tong Achew. Achew's grave and a Chinese temple are still there in Achipur and the Calcutta Chinese community visits this place every year during Chinese New Year.
My note: Tong Achew and Auchee Chinaman may or may not be same person. I do not know for sure.
